Capitol Cuisine is headed by Executive Chef, Angelique Goosen who has earned a remarkable reputation for creative canapes, magical menus and funky functions.
Having graduated from Port Elizabeth Technicon in 2007 as the Best overall Student in Hospitality and Catering Services, Angelique quickly made a name for herself in the culinary world. During her 7-year tenure at Imagination Food Design, she rose through the ranks to earn herself the title of Executive Head Chef. Her passion for food and wine led her to Doha as Executive Head Chef to one of the royal families before finally making her way back to South Africa to re-assert her skillset in corporate catering.
Angelique believes each wedding is unique and should be treated as such. Her philosophy is firmly set in understanding the bridal party, involving them in the menu planning and sharing every step of their exciting journey. “I want to know where they have travelled, their best colour palette, what they love and what they see when they close their eyes.” says Angelique.
This way we can create the perfect menu for the bridal couple, no matter how big or small their dream might be.
Menus are designed to speak to each bride’s individual dream; blended in consideration of the venue, season and decor preference. Meals are created using only the freshest local ingredients and are personally prepared by Angelique and her team of chefs. “Our aim is to add panache to each plate of a personalised menu,” is Angelique’s personal promise.
Capitol Cuisine is a subsidiary of Capitol Caterers (winner of multiple Nedbank PMCB Top Business Awards and also recipient of the Standard Bank KZN Top Business Award in 2019). The company is synonymous for good food and a client-centric focus to catering in KwaZulu- Natal and South Africa.
Capitol Cuisine also offers a creative catering service to corporates, large scale sporting events and high end private functions.
What professional service! Our daughter’s wedding high tea at Ukuthula on Saturday 24 April 2021 was delightful. Thank you. We were all impressed by the high standard of catering that Capitol Cuisine provided. Everything was perfect. The food tasted wonderful and looked so beautiful. It was exactly what we wanted.
Angelique’s helpfulness, kindness, common sense and professionalism was noticed by all the guests. We really appreciated her hard work.
We do highly recommend Capitol Cuisine.
My experience with Capitol Cuisine was impeccable and such a fun experience – for both my wedding and events I found them to be of the highest standard; creative, professional and they went above and beyond any expectations both in presentation, planning and execution.
Their team is powered by a mostly female team who are capable of the highest standard of catering – making your dreams come true and creating a stress-free and phenomenal wedding feast! I cannot recommend them enough.
